Bending in the Plane of the Curve In a straight beam having either a constant cross section or a cross section which changes gradually along the length of the beam, the neutral surface is defined as the longitudinal surface of zero fiber stress when the member is subjected to pure bending. It contains the neutral axis of every section, and these neutral axes pass through the centroids of the respective sections. In this section on bending in the plane of the curve, the use of the many formulas is restricted to those members for which that axis passing through the c…
